Route Outline

This walk in the Gower Peninsula starts from Penmaen and crosses the moorland ridge of Cefn Bryn, which offers excellent views to the coast. The route continues to Arthur's Stone the site of a neolithic burial chamber. From here the walk descends and passes through woods and the parkland of Penrice Castle. More woodland leads to the coast and a section of the Wales Coast Path which is used to return to the start via Three Cliffs Bay. The relevant OS Explorer map is useful for this walk.
